What I Do:
I specialize in Missouri records and basic genealogies up to at least 1850. However, I have and can complete research projects for other locations and time periods. I operate out of St. Louis Missouri, but have made trips to Southeast Missouri and Kansas City.
My services include:
-Preparation of Lineage Society Applications (ex. DAR, SAR)
-Consulting and Research Advice
My basic rate is $40 an hour plus copy costs. I require a 10% deposit of the final project fee along with my estimated copy costs (i.e. If I know we need to order death certificates ahead of time, I will include that in my bid.).
If you think I can help you with your family history research, please let me know by going to my profile ( the link is on the sidebar) and clicking the Email link under 'Content.' I am happy to provide bids for any project you propose.
If you want me to give you an estimate on a project I suggest using this template in an email so that I can get back to you quickly.
Here is a sample bid request:

I don't know if she had any siblings, and I can't with certainty find her with her parents in a census! Can you help find out their names and basic information?
